Advanced Trimix Training at Lake Mead

This past weekend, Josh and I were at Lake Mead, outside of Las Vegas training a group of divers in an Advanced Trimix class and another group finishing up their Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures.  We had a great time, with the exception that I managed to get all the way down there and forgot my dry suit!  I had to have it flown down on Delta!  What a pain the rear!

Water temp was 54 degrees at the surface and 52 at depth.  Nice brisk dive!  We were very lucky with the weather.  We had very windy evenings and were afraid that we were going to get blown out a couple of times, which wouldn't have been the first time at Lake Mead!

We had a great time with the group which consisted of Richard Lamb, Amy Smith, Jack Weimer and Jeannie Weimer who all completed their Advanced Trimix and Todd DuLaney and Ray Kovuisa who completed their Adv. Nitrox and Deco Procedures.

This is a picture of Ray's special super hero Finish Rubber Man Suit!  All one piece, it made underwater communications take on a whole new meaning with his rubber mittens!   You can see Jack standing next to Ray is concerned about something!
